Studies in Interpretation, Volume 4

From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Library Bookwatch

How does one who cannot hear, or cannot speak, represent themselves in a legal procedure? “Interpreting in Legal Settings” is a legal exploration of the rights of the deaf, in procedures where they must use an interpreter to speak to lawyers, judges, jury, and other officials. Ethics play a big part in this world, and authors Debra Russell and Sandra Hale, both professors in studies of deafness in their respective schools, draw into established legal cases for examples of well-handled and improperly handled situations with deaf plaintiffs and defendants. “Interpreting in Legal Settings” is a must read for both those in the avenues of law and those dealing with deaf people.

Debra Russell is director of the Western Canadian Centre of Studies in Deafness and the David Peikoff Chair of Deafness Studies at the University of Alberta in Canada.

Sandra Hale is an associate professor of Interpreting and Translation at the University of Western Sydney in Australia.
